The 2009 Barolo Sarmassa di Barolo (tasted in a magnum) shows delicate embroidery of shaved mineral, dried cherry fruit, ash, tar, licorice, ginger and light teriyaki. End notes of toasted hazelnut are reminiscent of the perfumes that waft over Alba’s Ferrero chocolate factory. Silky firmness and structure mean this wine will have no problem facing the years. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030. - ML

Loads of dried fruits such as strawberries and cherries. Full and very silky textured from the ripe tannins. Hints of cocoa and lightly toasted oak too. Wonderful tannins. Magnums only. Better in 2016.

Deeply pitched aromas of plum, mocha and truffley underbrush; roasted in a positive way. At once thick and lively in the mouth, boasting lush, sweet flavors of redcurrant, cherry and plum complicated by porcini and earth and complemented by mellow oak tones. Finishes very long, with huge, broad, well-buffered tannins. This classic Barolo is delicious already. - Stephen Tanzer

Ripe and rich, with a smooth texture wrapped around the flavors of cherry, plum, vanilla and cedar. Features a dense swath of tannins underneath and finishes with a loamy note. Best from 2016 through 2028. 233 cases made... Ripe and rich, with a smooth texture wrapped around the flavors of cherry, plum, vanilla and cedar.
